September 28 HP Boys Modified Soccer team beat Sauquoit 3-2. Sauquoit has a beautiful varsity-sized turf field that played fast.


HP Modified Soccer vs Remsen

In back to back games HP Boys Modified Soccer beat a good Remsen team 2-1.  Remsen doesn’t have a JV team and the Remsen Modified Boys Team had 7th – 10th graders playing.  HP had way more shots on goal, but Remsen had an excellent goal keeper.  Goals were scored by Ethan and Eric off a corner kick that the goalie tipped in.  Below the team celebrates after their win.


U15 AYSO vs Oneida

The first game was Sunday the 24th at 1 o’clock against Oneida at Betsinger Field 524 Betsinger Rd. Sherrill, N.Y. 13461. Since it is the start of vacation week from school a few players could not make the game. There will be no scheduled practices for AYSO, mainly due to the fact that a lot of the kids, if not all, are playing modified sports.

The team was primarily girls with 4 boys.  They lost 9-0 showing a lack of playing with one another, passes lacking pace and a desire to dribble the ball into the goal rather than shooting from the box.  But the kids had fun and played better in the 2nd half allowing only one goal in the 2nd half.

Modified soccer season came to a close.  The modified team had 16 players, 12 from the 7th grade and 4 8th graders.  Eric primarily played Striker.  The team struggled as many of their games pitted 7th graders versus teams with 7 – 9th graders as their opponents schools had no JV teams, therefore the 9th graders that didn’t make the varsity played on the modified team.  Despite the size difference HP won 3 games and were competitive in all but one game.  Scoring was an issue.

Last September Weekend

We couldn’t have asked for better weather this weekend. Eric’s soccer game Friday was versus Frankfort – a team that they lost to on Monday.  This time they won 2-1 and controlled the game flow.  Afterwards Eric went to the middle school dance while we played pitch with friends Steve/Linda and Bonnie/Cindy. Saturday I completed my defensive driving class.  Every three years for the insurance discount.  But it was a crime to sit inside on such a nice day. Kathryn canned pears and made applesauce for the winter.  We cut another cord of firewood for next year as we opened up our trail in back of Kincaids so that my tractor and brush hog will fit through.  I climbed up on our roof and cleaned our wood stove chimney.  Our chimney was quite clean. Eric has soccer games on Monday and Tuesday.  Kathryn and I watched the full lunar eclipse before crashing for the night.

HPMS vs Canastota

In their 2nd game in a row HP Modified Soccer team faced a big (20 player) and experienced Remsen team. Once again playing against a team comprised of 7-9th graders, HPMS was challenged to control the ball.  The team didn’t space as well as their opening game, seemed flat to start and did a lot of kicking versus passing of the ball.  Remsen was not only big, but also as fast as HPMS.  They lost 4-1 but played better the last 10 minutes of the game.

Wednesday night HPMS traveled to Canastota (another 7-9th grade team).  Canastota had 14 players with a couple of good players, but also some holes; they were not able to match HPMS’s speed across all positions.  HPMS won 5-2 with goals by Luke, Eric and Jack;  in all 7 players took shots on goal.  Below HPMS listens to Coach Parson’s prior to the game.
